The Flower Girl!

My pretty little girl was a flower girl for the very first time on 4.26.09. She did so good!! We started the morning at 10:30 with Papa Gordon doing her hair, and of course even though she was warned she accidentally touched the very hot curling iron. It ended up working out to her benefit, she got to eat a Popsicle while her hair was finished.

Next it was off to the train station for pictures. I know I'm partial but what a photogenic little girl! She posed beautifully and was very patient for the time we were there. Although around 1 pm she had to go the the bathroom so bad, and informed me that she hadn't been at all that day. Shame on me for not making her go as soon as she woke up!! Fortunately the O.P. Library was very close and had just opened. After the pictures and a quick stop at Tim Horton's for some well deserved treats, it was off to the Ceremony.

I was definitely more nervous than Riley. She did excellent walking slow down the isle. From all the excitement and early morning she fell asleep about halfway through the ceremony, and when she woke up and found the ceremony to be over she burst into tears. She was so upset because she thought she had missed the dancing!

Next it was off to Cecelia's for dinner. Here she is with Allison and Matt, the Bride and Groom. This restaurant was amazing! The food was so delicious, Adam and myself will definitely be returning for a date night!

Party Time!! The reception was at Henry's Lounge at Kleinhans Music Hall. This is what Riley was waiting for. The girl loves to dance. Riley loved being a flower girl, and now when she's playing pretend at home that's all she wants to play!
